Twitter is officially a viable recruiting tool, we all know that. It's also pretty easy to record your success, especially when others do it for you. Big thanks to @thecoleorton
for documenting a recent hire I had through Twitter.

I've been watching candidates interview for years as I would always ask my client to sit in during the conversation. The one thing I've quickly noticed is the candidate’s inability to close the interview. What do I mean by closing the interview; I'm talking about gaining the right to advance through to the next round.
If you ask most people this question, "Are you a Salesperson?" the instant response is "no way" or "I could never do that" or "I can't sell anything." That is simply… Continue

I have recently launched my jobsite www.nuclearcareersonline.com and am getting a good number of jobs and views. However I am only getting 0.5% - 1% conversion from views to applications.

In true St. Louis “baseball fanatic” fashion I want to talk a little about what I affectionately call the “curve ball”… I was thrown said curve ball late last week and my lack of refinement in my initial response to it immediately reminded me of just how important flexibility and a dynamic attitude can be in recruiting. To be honest, it’s been a little while since I had a pitcher who really “stepped up to the plate” and surprised me – (okay, I’m done with the baseball lingo now, I just wanted… Continue

If you are like me you are getting many, many phone calls from job seekers and in many cases you are not able to help them as much as you would like.

If you have folks you cannot help send them my way and through the webinar… Continue

NYC Mayor Bloomberg speaks about his plan to create 400,000 new jobs...I was shaking my head when he specifically noted that some of the new jobs will be good paying, many with benefits, jobs that could be created elsewhere
. Woo-hoo, the recovery is around the corner.
Now I don't want to sound so flippant but its difficult not to when politicians - even Mayor Mike who knows a thing or two about business - speak so gallantly about job growth: It isn't as simple as… Continue

posted "A" candidates are available and readily available at that.

Seems as if LinkedIn Answers is highly cited in the recruiter space as the place where one can ask questions and receive answers from the enlightened ones. There are also Forums here as well as on ERE, the spawn of David Manaster's parents.
